Walking in The WildSide (London)

2009-03-27 2

London have no frontiers. If you want, you can put them (the river, for example). But I don´t recommended it !!!

It´s London too !!! The taxi are black (well, … a “little” black, and colorful), the squirrel are jumping and eating chestnuts, … We are in London !!! But … Where are the Big Ben, The Parliament Houses, Chelsea, Piccadilly, …The Queen !!! All of them are in the “other side”. I may say “in the wild side”
.
The Southbank is more quietly, more “analogue”. I love to walk along and across this part of London. You can take photos, and when you show it to your mother, she will say: Are you sure you go to the right town? Is this London?

You have great places, like the London Eye (Is it more fashion & chic the “little” Piccadilly Circus? Trafalgar Square?), The Tate modern (Have you ever seen the “old” Tate? What do you think? What is the most beautiful?).

And you can see the city, the “old town” … besides the river, away from the noise, with a different perspective.

    hmm, good point,...iv been to both the tate modern and the tate britain, i love the tate britain building, but i prefer the content of the modern...think i prefer the modern overall, but i agree, the southbank is definitely the analogue side of london

    I´m agree with you !!
    The perfect definition: "The South Bank is the analogue part of London".

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
